Muscular Minimalism

This four-bedroom, five-bedroom Venice Beach retreat offers a wholly new take on contemporary living. With its use of rugged materials and exceptional focus on movement between spaces, the residence creates a sense of what Gordon refers to as “muscular minimalism” — clean lines, organic materials and a preference for sweeping architectural gestures over intricate ornamentation. Stacked-rock walls, frame-less iron windows and under-finished raw materials create a sense of beach-inspired brutalism. Located blocks from bustling Abbot Kinney, the 4,300 square foot home offers a true sanctuary where residents can enjoy seamless indoor/outdoor integration, sweeping deck views and a complete flexibility of design.
